Quick Freelance Writing Tip for grabbing more Business
Chris, how can I make more money as a freelance writer? You donâ€™t know how many times I hear this every week. Although there is no â€œformalâ€ answer, I love to hear this question time and time again. It means that you guys and gals are interested in earning more â€“ and that is a good start!
Most people will give this advice: if you want to earn more money you should find more clients. While this is 100 percent true, it is not your only option.
Have you given any thought to asking your existing clients if there is anything else you can do for them? You may be surprised at just how much assistance they need. For instance, you may be focusing purely on web content at this time. But did you ever stop to think that the same client may need help with writing and placing feature articles or creating marketing material?
There is nothing wrong with offering all your services. This may not lead to an immediate increase in responsibility, but if your client ever needs additional writing services you are probably going to be high on their list of people to speak with.
So, rather than spend all your time marketing your services and searching for new clients, think about what you can do for those that you have already established a relationship with.
